Delicious and nutritious. Who could ask for more? This Cajun-spiced salmon sandwich is cooled by creamy avocado-mayo, making it a wonderful source of heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids.
1 lb. salmon fillet, skinned and quartered
2 tsp. Cajun seasoning
4 whole-wheat rolls, split
1 avocado
2 Tbsp. Guiding Star-worthy mayonnaise
1 cup arugula
2 plum tomatoes, thinly sliced
1/2 cup thinly sliced red onion
Blackened Salmon Sandwich


1. Oil grill rack and preheat grill to high.
2. Rub salmon on both sides with seasoning. Grill until cooked through, turning once (3-4 minutes per side). Place the rolls on a higher rack to toast.
3. Mash avocado and mayonnaise together in a small bowl.
4. To assemble sandwiches, spread some of the avocado mixture on each toasted roll and top with salmon, arugula, tomato, and onion.
